New News:

I have one final parent teacher conference with the Hines family tomorrow at

Monday 12/11 is an early dismissal day.

On Friday Dec. 15 th each child will decorate a graham cracker house. If each family could send in some candy or whatever you think would go well on a graham
cracker house we will have enough for the graham cracker houses and cookie
decorating too.
For example:
Necco wafers – great for roofs
Gumdrops – great for decorative touches and fences
Marshmallows – mini or larger ones
Hershey kisses etc.

We will hold our Christmas party and cookie decorating in the afternoon on Friday
12/22. Mrs. Webber may be contacting you to donate for the party.

Dec 20th – Christmas concert 6:30 in church. The Science fair will follow in church hall.

Dec. 21 st – Robin Hood play

Tip for manger animal costume – I was talking with Mrs. Green from the library.
She was a theater major in college and specialized in costuming. She said an easy
way to make a costume is to start with a plain baseball cap as a base. Then attach
by sewing or hot glue ears/a nose etc. on the baseball cap. If anyone is desperate
let me know. I think I have a fabric mask of a cow that we could modify and use
for the play.

I enjoyed meeting with each family to discuss your child’s progress.
